Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry eclipsed Ray Allen's all-time record for NBA three-pointers on Tuesday,
savoring a "beautiful moment" at storied Madison Square Garden.
'I really... I can't say it enough, I appreciate so much the way the fans embraced the moment with me and let me just kinda get lost in it.
But the bar that was set by Ray and the fact that I could get there in the amount of games that I did, and shoot the percentage that I did,and that's something I'm really proud of,
cause all of the work that goes into it and just the belief that you can continue to get better every single year.'
Curry, whose remarkable shooting range has revolutionized the NBA in his 13-year tenure,
matched Allen's record with his 2,973rd career three-pointer.
It came on his first shot of the clash with the New York Knicks, less than 2 minutes into the contest, and had the crowd on its feet.
He then missed a chance at breaking the record, but with 7 minutes and 33 seconds remaining in the opening period,
Andrew Wiggins kicked the ball to him from the paint and he swished in number 2974,
letting out a yell as teammates celebrated with him and the New York crowd cheered.
Curry has been scorching towards overtaking Allen's record for years.
He finally surpassed the milestone in his 789th career game. Allen achieved his old benchmark in 1300 appearances.
最终，在自己的第789场职业比赛中，他达成了这一里程碑 。而雷·阿伦创下的旧记录则是用了1300场比赛 。
Curry is on pace to make well over 400 three-pointers this season, which would put him at more than 3200 for his career.
He finished the night with five three-pointers as the Warriors pulled away late to beat the Knicks 105-96 and improved their league-leading record 23-5.
